    Second workout of the day is in the books - workout 1 of 3 from TrainerRoad's Sweet Spot Base 1 (low volume)
    Did my 90 minutes yesterday a little harder than I should have, so decided to just do some fun sprints today on the Indoor Rower. Did 15 minutes on the AD Pro to warmup, then 20 second sprints on the rower with 1 minute rests (it's a max power test). This is one time I set the DF higher (around 140 or so). It's essentially (for me right now) 100m sprints. When in shape, you're supposed to be able to do 20 sets at around at least 80% of max power.

    Mike, your 20 second sprints sound not so dissimilar to the middle section of my ride today. 30 second VO2 max sprints with 1 and a half minute rests in between. That was sandwiched between some single leg work and 2X 6' sweet spot (just below my FTP).

    Manic monday

    30min sprint session with trainer in the rain. Love actual running in the rain, sprint training not so much.

    5/3/1 cycle 4 week 3 bench, plus still working on finding the perfect weight for the 15 rep accessory sets.

    5km on rower plus stretch

    Circuits - trx and shuttles in the rain.

    Entered a local 10k on a whim so not sure if I'll be doing the heavier lifting for legs later in the week.

    Core and arms.... Only 25 min. I'm doing a 30 day plan. (Planks are challenging the more time there is to say the least. lol)

    A little more than 10km in a quad. An hour of more or less non stop rowing stopping only to spin and once because we ran over a very small log that, from the warnings of the double, sounded like it would be larger than it was. Within that were 5 or 6 five minute pieces at 75% pressure.

    Varied deadlifts (block, touch/go, banded and deficit) followed up by a hot HIIT class.

    Yesterday (9/9), rowed bow seat in a quad for 6.9km (we did a few power pieces; a couple small crabs by 3 seat, who's new, but not too bad). Today (9/10), another spin class.

    What's very funny (ha-ha, not peculiar) to me is that Garmin already has me at 181 active minutes for the week even though that's only about 105 minutes of exercise, much of it pretty-moderate steady state . . . and I suspect (best guess) this is because my heart rate was a little elevated for the last couple of days due to major over-maintenance eating on Sunday evening, and moderate over-maintenance eating on Monday. I'm not new to these activities, not even close: My sense of RPE suggests my intensity level was a little lower than my heart rate range totals would imply. 79 "vigorous" minutes seems kind of doubtful. :lol:

    Crazy Tuesday.
    Just a point to anyone who might try to jump in at this level of activity, it's taken a few years for me to build up to this and I eat to fuel the activity....

    30min stair workout with trainer, included a total of 80 split squats for each leg.

    45min zumba class

    5/3/1 cycle 4 week 3 shoulder press plus accessories. Still working out the sweet weight for the 15 rep sets in accessories but think I've got there for skull crushers.

    35min interval run, 15min warm up then 4 rounds of 3min fast/2min recover. Really struggled with last fast interval but that's how it should be.

    45min insanity class, really, really tough

    45min boxercise class, didn't partner the instructor this week, so used the long punches with less power as the person I did partner was new. Felt strange to hold pads.

    My HR monitor looked just like yours on the sprint part but I didn't do the AT work you did at the end. Great work!

    Today was just more Steady State (supposed to be easy) work. Was way too hard for what my HR was supposed to stay at. Not sure why. It was hot today in the room. I also upped the DF a bit (but it's still well below what I used pre back injury). I also stayed around 17 SPM, not 16, which is likely the cause. Whatever the reason, like this workout to end up being around 140 HR average and it ended up 150 HR average. Might take off the rower completely tomorrow and just do an easier bike session.

    9/10/2019 - a 12 hour plus travel day so a workout rest day.
  • aokoyeaokoye Posts: 2,811Member Member Posts: 2,811Member Member
    Second of three TrainerRoad workouts of the week. We're on day two of my Kickr Snap hating the world which is not great as I have no desire to buy a new smart trainer right now. I realize I could do these without one because I have my Powertap pedals, but still. I have a few more things to try to see if it will play nice/before I give up.

    I also had a very good talk with a rowing friend of mine about the usefulness (or lack thereof) of 5k tests for various people/types of people, winter erg training, and the importance of building/maintaining a base before going into winter training. It also looks like at least one of our bids came through for HOTC (which I only know because said friend mentioned that she was going and I know she didn't buy her way in - aka she's not in a small boat or a charity race).

    edit: the past week and a half of regular cycling using a logical plan are confirmation that I was more or less eating at maintenance prior. I don't weigh most of my food because it leads to me obsessing to a fairly unhealthy degree. That said, my not eating back all of my cycling calories is proving useful with regards to starting to seemingly actually lose weight again. We'll see if this lasts. I suspect it will given the weight lose that happened when I was doing the same plan in the past and when I was erging last winter.
